Johnnie Walker has announced the launch of Masters of Flavor, the third and final whisky in the Johnnie Walker Masters series. Only 288 bottles of Johnnie Walker Masters of Flavour — a blend of scotches that all have been aged at least 48 years will be released. It will sell at a suggested retail price of £20,000 (about $26,800).
It is fascinating to craft a Scotch that pays tribute to each of the four main steps in whisky making – malting, distilling, cask maturation and blending – to shine a light on how each craft contributes something very special to the extraordinary flavours that Scotch has to offer, from grain to glass. – Jim Beveridge, Johnnie Walker Master Blender.
Johnnie Walker Masters of Flavour includes whiskies from the ghost distilleries of Glyn Albyn, Port Dundas, Brora, and Glenury Royal, balancing them perfectly together with the iconic distilleries of Cameronbridge, Blair Athol and Dalwhinnie.
Bottled at 41.8% ABV, Johnnie Walker Masters of Flavour is described as having aromas of “soft and gentle smoke, reminiscent of seaweed and salty air, giving way to rich dried fruits, molasses, and leather-bound books.” The palate introduces “rich fruit flavors bursting with currants, a gentle spice, cinnamon-infused apples combined with star anise, crushed peppercorn, and warming oak embers, enveloped in waves of baked caramel and rich butterscotch.” It concludes with “a gentle and warming smoke” on the finish.
